Постмодернизм как "ощущение конца"
The key thesis of the article is that the epoch, defined by the American Marxist Fredric Jameson as postmodern, can be characterized as a “sense of the end”. And since Jameson himself in his book “Postmodernism, or the cultural logic of late capitalism” does not thoroughly analyze the discussions about the end of history, ideology, etc., the author does it instead of him to conrm or overturn this thesis. Considering the key concepts of the discussions that took place in social, cultural and political theory (the end of ideology, the end of art, the end of social, the end of history), the author traces their relationship with the term postmodern and discovers between the concepts not always noticeable, sometimes too fine, but still strong connections. As a result, it is concluded that these discussions, despite the fact that they took place in completely difierent areas of social knowledge, create “polarities” and form a single discursive space, which can be characterized as a “discursive field of postmodern”. The completion of the discussions at the beginning of the XXI century shows the transition from the postmodern to a new stage of intellectual history.
